Aspirations Programs

Admissions 101

A highly interactive program where high school sophomores serve as the Admissions Committee for Dirigo State University and make decisions on who is qualified for admissions. This cost-free program comes to your high school and introduces students to the college process. Emphasis is on course selection, performance, the college search, and what is considered when making admissions decisions. Contact Kelly Gualtieri , Director of Admissions.

Discovery Voyage

Demonstrating how classroom instruction relates to “the real world” is the focus of this on-campus program. Maine high school students apply their math and science knowledge in a number of ways: aboard our oceanographic research vessels, in our engineering operations labs, bridge simulator, and/or during an international business role play. See our college “in action”. Free lunch. Contact Hugh Porter, Associate Director of Admissions.
